Maire signs licensing contract with DG Fuels for SAF technology

| By Scott Jenkins

MAIRE S.p.A. (Milan, Italy; announced Monday that NEXTCHEM (Sustainable Technology Solutions BU), through its subsidiary MyRechemical, a company in the waste-to-chemical segment, has signed a licensing contract with DG Fuels Louisiana, LCC in relation to its proprietary NX Circular gasification technology.

The plant, expected to be operational in 2028, will produce 450 million liters per year of SAF derived from residual biomass and a minor part of municipal waste. MyRechemical has been selected as technology licensor for the gasification and gas treatment units able to process 1 million tons per year of bagasse and sugar cane trash and pulp, representing the first step for the SAF production. The licensing contract provides that MyRechemical will also supply the proprietary equipment for the gasification package with an option for applying a modular approach to minimize site contingencies, as well as the associated technical services.

The project meets the requirements set by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s Clean Fuels & Products Shot initiative, which aims to decarbonize the aviation sector by industrializing SAF production. Additionally, SAF derived from biomass or waste resources is eligible under the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA) established by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to reduce airlines’ carbon offsetting requirements.

DG Fuels Louisiana is a subsidiary of DG Fuels, a U.S. company engaged in renewable hydrogen and biogenic based, synthetic low emissions aviation fuel.
